GenCure is looking for young videographers and directors across South Texas for its annual scholarship video contest.
The requirements are simple: Create a 2-3 minute video that displays the importance of joining the Donate Life Texas registry and explains the role that tissue donation has in people’s lives. The goal of the video is to encourage viewers to sign up for the registry.
The competition is open April 1-May 31, and it is for high school seniors. First prize is a $1,000 scholarship, and the winning video will be posted on the GenCure website, as well as on social media channels of BioBridge Global, GenCure’s parent organization.
Information, including a list of counties where students are eligible to enter, is at GenCure.org/scholarship.
The winner of the scholarship will be notified by June 10.
